I had the honor of accompanying two of my wonderful students to an award ceremony for their writing. However, not only did I get to go with them, I also had to facilitate a poetry session for 7th graders – gulp. 7th graders are a lot bigger than 5th graders! I also knew it would be 80 degrees and we had a chance of being outside and that I would get stuck on a bus for a while. So behold; patterned shorts with a patterned shirt. As they say, sometimes mixing patterns works, other times it goes horribly wrong. I think this one worked.
